I have to confess, I was all set to do a cheery green St. Patrick’s Day shout out, but it all seems pretty silly and meaningless when you consider the tragedy in Japan. There are, of course, many ways to donate to the relief efforts-thoughts, prayers, and sympathy not being the least of them, either-but a large number of Etsy sellers have stepped up and donated their wares to do their part. So instead of writing up clever little descriptions convincing you just how awesome all these products are, I’ll leave it at this: These artists are all immensely talented and immensely generous-by supporting them, you support others, and receive a wonderful handmade product to thank you for it. Please consider purchasing one of these amazing pieces.
